Palazzo Trousers. Although not my cup of tea, palazzo trousers are set to be highly fashionable over the next year! Another trip back to the 70s. If they are worn right they can look amazing but I always feel you have to be quite brave to wear them especially as it's still a very new trend. This 70s trend is set to stick around until AW11 so they will be a brilliant investment buy and will take you right through to next season. I'm sure I will be investing in a pair over the next month. I'll post a picture when I do!

Advice on how to wear palazzo trousers.
- I would recommend that you need a taller frame to not be drowned by the trousers. If you are slightly shorter then look at capri pants (cropped trousers)
- For the best look they should be worn with heels as when worn with flats they have the potential to look like a skirt, in my opinion anyway.
- To make the most of the 70s style we are seeing so much recently pair them with a floppy hat & big platforms
- A tight fitted shirt will balance out the volume given from the trousers, a blouse can look equally as good but you will probably find that a waist belt will be needed to break up the "bagginess"

An easy way to wear the capri style pants without having to buy any would be to just slightly roll up the bottom of any skinny jeans you may have (I am just assuming everyone owns a pair of skinny jeans!!)
I find this style quite funny because a few years ago if your jeans didn't quite reach the floor because you had grown everyone would laugh and they would be called "ankle swingers" but who would have known that this style would become a huge trend!
